The members of the Inner Mongolian People’s Party (IMPP) in Germany, along with a group of Tibetan and East Turkistanese protestors, gathered at 10:00 am, November 11, 2005, in front of the Chinese Embassy to Berlin, to protest the Chinese president Hu Jintao who is paying a state visit to the country, and stood on the sidewalk for several hours, holding up the flag of IMPP and protest banners, calling for a free and independent Southern (Inner) Mongolia.

The protestors condemned China’s colonial regime and oppressive policy in Southern Mongolia, and demanded the right to self-governance, right to practice their own culture, tradition, and custom, and freedom of speech, expression, and assembly that are totally denied to the Mongols in Southern Mongolia.  Protestors also called for the immediate and unconditional release of prominent political prisoner Mr. Hada who is still serving his 10th year of 15 year jail term for demanding higher autonomy for the Mongols, and Mr. Naguunbilig and Ms. Daguulaa who are still being held without proper trial for merely practicing Mongolian traditional medicine and gathering Mongolian patients. 

Mongolia, along with China and Tibet, was under the Manchu rule between 1635 and 1911. Southern Mongolia, widely but mistakenly known as “Inner Mongolia”, was occupied by Communist China in 1947. Other than that, no part of Mongolia had ever been part of China. During the past half a century, Mongols in Southern Mongolia have not only been deprived of their right to self-governance but also denied basic human rights and fundamental freedom. Large numbers of Chinese migrants settled into the region, making the Mongols an absolute minority on their own land. Hundreds of thousands of Mongols became subject to persecution just for being Mongol.
